This sweet family asked me to take their first family photos since welcoming their sweet baby boy, Nolan! It was a chilly evening at Edinburgh West, but my goodness it was a pretty one with a beautiful golden sunset. We took these a little past the peak of Fall leaves and I gotta say, I […]

Starting a photography business is such a wonderful journey to begin! When I first started 3+ years ago, I was so excited at the prospect of potentially quitting my day job (check!) and growing a successful, booked out photography business (check!). But let me tell you, it didn’t start out that way. When I started […]

Bryana was the sweetest mama to work with for her Fresh 48. Baby Zander was due right around the holidays, and knowing I had some travel planned around her due date, we weren’t sure I’d be available for a Fresh 48 when Zander made his debut! Bryana was so sweet and really wanted me to […]

This sweet boy was a dream for his session! Baby Mason was a teeny little guy, and is so very loved by his mama and daddy. I love the soft colors they chose for his nursery. Welcome to the world sweet baby Mason!

I am always so impressed with my gender surprise families (umm, hello patience on a whole new level!), and I was SO excited when this sweet mama shared the news that they had a baby GIRL! She was the tiniest little thing at 5lbs 13oz, and surprised everyone by arriving two weeks early! I loved […]

As a working mama, running a business is all about keeping things organized and efficient! Ironically, my home is a disaster 99% of the time – laundry piled high, dishes in the sink, and a mess of toys almost always scattered in the living room. But when it comes to my business!? Well, let’s just […]

I’ve been watching this sweet boy grow since he was in his mama’s tummy! From maternity to hospital and home newborn and now 6 months, it’s a privilege to watch this baby boy grow and thrive in his first year of life! I love 6 month milestone mini sessions in the studio. This age is […]

I’m a huge believer that it’s NOT the gear that makes the photographer, but rather how the photographer uses that gear to create their art! In fact, I did a few personal shoots last year with an old Canon Rebel t2i to prove that it doesn’t take incredible gear to get incredible results! BUT. It’s […]

Baby Grayson is the most PERFECT, squishy little boy! At just 8 days old, he slept like a champ for his entire session. It’s so clear how loved this baby boy is! Thank you so much to the De Palma family for letting me document the arrival of your sweet boy through a maternity session, […]

Ohhh this sweet family and these gorgeous girls! Louise and Marion are the sweetest little ladies. Baby Marion’s nickname at school is “little jelly doughnut” and oh my goodness if that’s not just perfect for this squishy and sweet little beauty! And big sister Louise has the sweetest, most curious little personality! I loved every […]

Welcome to the world, beautiful baby Edie! I loved everything about this sweet girl’s white nursery with gorgeous, vibrant pops of color! She was three weeks old at the time of our session, but still the tiniest, sweetest little thing! She also has the same exact birthday as my own daughter, which was so very […]

I love offering a “mini maternity session” option to all of my newborn clients. It’s such a wonderful way to document this special time as you wait for your baby to arrive, without the pressure and commitment of a full outdoor lifestyle session. Falls Park is always the most gorgeous backdrop, and I especially loved […]
